Repaving, widening underway for roads

MADISON – Smoother commutes to work, school and the grocery store will be available when several road projects are completed in Madison.

City of Madison Public Works Department will work at the intersection of Hardiman Road and County Line Road. At that intersection, workers will widen Hardiman Road in preparation for the installation of a new traffic signal.

Public Works employees will work at the Hardiman/County Line Road project between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to avoid heavy traffic and thus alleviate possible delays. Work will begin on Dec. 4 and will continue for two weeks.

City officials caution drivers that flag personnel will be on site. Drivers must follow the traffic control direction of individuals using flags.

On Nov. 27, milling and paving began on a number of streets in the established, older neighborhood east of Hughes Road and south of Old Madison Pike. The city’s engineering department expects this work to require approximately one month, weather permitting.

Roadways involved with these improvements are Marion Drive, Larry Drive, Larry Place, Larry Circle, Walton Drive, Walton Road, Carol Street, Sharp Boulevard, Brentwood Drive, Keith Circle, Clift Drive, Carter Drive, Gilmore Street and Carter Circle.

Crews soon will complete milling and paving along Bibb Drive, Carnette Drive, Westminster Way and Station Road; these streets are north of Mill Road and west of Sullivan Street.

For any questions, call Cody Wright with City of Madison Engineering Department at 256-772-2565.

In other road projects, construction continues on Martin Street with “Streetscape Improvements – Downtown, Phase III.” This work will bring the roadways up to current standards, increasing safety and performance. Relocation of above-ground utilities to underground will increase the aesthetic value of the streetscape and will improve safety by removing non-breakaway objects from the right-of-way, according to city officials.

New sidewalks on Martin Road will result will expedite pedestrian traffic. The city’s existing parking lot will include handicapped designations and lighting for a more attractive parking venue for guests to downtown. Parking and sidewalks will be compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA.
